Whether you are just curious about swooping, or are looking for that competitive edge, the AXIS Canopy Piloting program will challenge any level of jumper. Improving speed production, defining canopy limits, piloting craft, and course navigation techniques are combined with personalized instruction, and real-world competition scenarios.
All courses in this program can be customized to suit your needs. We can accommodate most time and budget parameters â€“ even full day and multi-day courses (on-site or off-site)!
All Canopy Piloting courses are by appointment only.
… introduces jumpers to using front risers on their final approach. You will be made aware of glide slop changes and increased airspeed. Consistently accurate landings are a prerequisite for this course, as adding power with minimal directional control is not a good receipt. Much of the course's focus is placed on flight-planning. Adjusting for wind conditions in order to fly precise and repeatable patterns using a GPS tracking system.
… is the next step in the performance landing program. Once a pilot has demonstrated proficiency in developing speed on a straight-in-approach, s/he will then be introduced to adding rotation (45Ëš, 90Ëš, 270Ëš, and so on). By building the performance approach from the bottom up, the student is always flying towards familiar sight pictures. In addition, it is paramount knowing when to abandon or bail from a performance turn. This is not a matter of if, but when. When pushing your personal performance envelope, safety conscious decision-making is essential.
… enhances a pilot's ability by shifting the focus back to accuracy. Having demonstrated that s/he can bring energy to the ground, the emphasis is now placed on directing that energy through a set of entry gates. This prepares prospecting competition pilots on how to enter a competition course.
